Lip Service



I’m pretty sure Bonnie Bell is a gateway drug.  Got my first one on 4th grade.



I’ve been meaning to write a post about lip balms and lip scrubs for AGES.    I hate it when my lips feel dry and I am semi addicted to lip balm.  My son says I don’t drink enough water and that’s why my lips get dry.  Out of the mouth of babes, he’s right though.  So beyond hydrating via water, I also like lip scrubs and have a serious lip balm collection.  If you are in the same boat, here are some of my favorites:

Lip Scrubs:

E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator elf

Seriously, whoever invented this lip scrub is a god damn genius as far I am concerned.  The fact that it is in a lipstick form makes for perfect lip exfoliation and it’s only $3.00.  I got mine at Target, but E.L.F. is everywhere these days.

Lush Popcorn –


A pot of this will last you forever, and it works just as well as the ELF lip scrub.  The only difference is that the application is slightly messier – as you stick your finger in a pot and apply to your lips with your finger.  I’m not a huge fan of fingers in pots, but whatever it works.  Hey, it also smells and tastes just like popcorn.  Available at Lush for $10.99.

Lip Balms:

Bioderma Atoderm Lip Balm –

This lip balm is the shiz, and totally worth the extra coin.  The formula is perfect and gives your lips a really nice moisturized glow without being sticky.  Available on and Amazon.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 –

I’ve gone through countless tubes of this no nonsense lip balm over the years.  It’s a nice, thick lip balm for when you need a nice thick lip balm – like before going to sleep at night.  I’ve also been know to put this on my cheekbones in lieu of glittery highlighter.  It gives a nice post work out glow without out actually working out.  Works great on cuticles too!

I could go on, but I think that’s enough for now.  I will leave you with this inspiring quote from the inspiring Iris Apfel.
